I was diagnosed with 'frostbite of the penis'
Edited on Tue Mar-10-09 07:46 AM by underpants
:rofl: from this month's Runner's World magazine. One of the funniest things I have ever read...and it is all true! :rofl:
read the whole thing for a great laugh

Runners' Stories
THE PACK RULES: DON'T BE EMBARRASSED
Essential advice from runners & readers.

2. Check Your Gear
Rachel Chalmers of Oakford, Illinois, found out the hard way that her tights had become threadbare. "On a run someone yelled at me, 'Hey, we can see your a**!'" Madhur Kotharay of Mumbai was underdressed for freezing temperatures during the New Year's Eve Midnight Run in New York City's Central Park. "At the medical tent, I was diagnosed with 'frostbite of the penis' and made to sit in the official car with the heater on full blast," he says. During a run in Mississippi, August Russell discovered the perils of sweltering heat. "The humidity had made my shorts stick to my skin, and they had completely disappeared into my butt cheeks. I may as well have been running in a thong."

5. Don't Wet Yourself
Buoyed by the thought of beating her half-marathon goal, Wendy Uhlenhake of Anna, Ohio, didn't want to make a pit stop. "By the final stretch, I started to pee with the pace, hoping no one would notice."

7. Keep It Down
Mary Arnstein of Pittsburgh felt queasy after running a leg of the Penn Relays. "Bill Cosby came over to congratulate me, and I returned his kindness by throwing up on him."


9. Tread Carefully <---- This one is my favorite. Imagine this chain of events suddenly happening next to you :rofl:
"I was running on the treadmill when the magazine I had on the front panel fell off," says Lauren Hoff of Thornton, Colorado. "I slipped on it, hit my face on the front panel as I fell, and knocked over a trainer and her client as I flew off." Says Megan M. of Boston who also fell off the 'mill, "I was propelled straight into a mirror behind me, which promptly cracked." Stacie Rose of Greenville, Michigan, landed face first on the belt, breaking her nose. "Runners have arthroscopic surgery, but I got rhinoplasty!"

10. Pay Attention
When Justin Shelman of Kansas City, Missouri, began suffering in the Chicago Marathon (his first), he sought help in a Tylenol tent. "I spotted what I thought was liquid Tylenol and swallowed it," he says. "It was Vaseline."

1. OMG. When I first saw this, I thought you were talking about yourself.
:rofl:

I thought you might have been out running last week when the temps were ten and eleven degrees.

10. You know, a post about "performance pouch" underwear is very fitting
considering your name. :)

Are you the inventor?

6. It's no joke. I grew up in Minnesota and played hockey outdoors all day
and had that painful experience on a few occasions. I termed it "frozen carburetor" :scared:

The thing was, when outside, it just got numb and it wasn't really a problem UNTIL you went inside and it started thawing. Yeeeouch.

8. I've had nipple burn
the old soccer uniforms we have were made out of some kind of synthetic plastically fiber. On the cold playing days we would be freezing, the nips would be standing up, and rubbed raw against the jerseys.

Odd, and not at all pleasant.

11. My best friend growing up fell butt-first in the snow while peeing
And yelled, "Oh, crap, I'm going to get assbite of the frost!"

She was always good for a fun malapropism. :rofl:
